Our wisdom comes from God and our church built on the legacy of African and African American Episcopal saints.

Work Alongside God

We prayerfully do inreach and outreach to impact the city of Raleigh through our inclusive community ministries.

DISCOVER OUR IMPACT

Our patron saint, Bishop Ambrose of Milan, lived in Italy during the 300s C.E. According to tradition, bees landed on his face as a child, leaving honey on his lips. He was a gifted orator, earning him the name “the honeyed tongue preacher.” The bees and the beehive are historic symbols of Saint Ambrose.

What time is your service?

We have two worship services each Sunday; 8 and 10:15am. We also have Bible studies on Mondays at 12:15pm and Tuesday mornings at 9:30 as well as a mid-week mass on Wednesdays at 12:15pm.
